Freedom Tower
 
Took this no so frequently seen view of the Freedom Tower at Battery Park. It's a 2 image vertical pano made by shifting the lens all the way up for the first image and then all the way down for the second http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/emoticons/biggrin.gif Thanks for looking!

5D MK III
17mm TS-E f/4 L
f/13
1.6 sec
ISO 400

G'day Chris

For a 2-image pano you have done remarkably well ... exposure & distortions etc. all covered very nicely

As a pano lover, this appeals to me very strongly - well done

A lovely scene well captured. Really like the colors and the pano result.

Nicely done colours and reflections are great

Thanks Phil! Here's what happened....we all setup about an hour before blue hour. Took a few test shots which included the background photo for the above pano. Lucky I took it, shortly after the fountain was turned off. I waited a little longer for the water to settle down and took my foreground photo at a longer shutter speed to try to flatten out the water. Just as I took the photo a security guard came out of nowhere and told us we couldn't use our tripods here. Monopods yes, tripods no. We were all bummed but at least he nice about it and we got some photos of the fountain while it was on. I had to manually merge the two images in PS because LR kept putting the foreground photo, fountain off, in front of my background photo, fountain on. It was very easy to merge since I used a tilt shift lens. I love this lens! :D I need to add the 24mm TS-E to my kit :D

Surely if you are in a "public place" and not creating a legal nuisance, there should be no restrictions on photography?

After all - what you are viewing is wide open to the world at large
